    What's left for 2002?

    With Ephant Mon and Endor Rebel Soldier (No goatee) showing up in stores now, what else is coming out in 2002?

    I know of these:
    R2 and C-3PO Christmas set
    Cantina Bar Sets Wave 2
    Silver R2 - Nov 3
    Yo momma. That's right, I said "yo momma".

    Cantina bar sets are January 2003. At least that's what Diamond are saying. All the sites I've seen offering them for pre-order seem to agree. Same with the third wave of star tours figures.

    The imperial forces 4-pack might make it before the end of the year though. Still waiting for someone to actually offer it for more than a notify when in stock e-mail alert.

    Possibly the Red Battle Droid?
    Powdered Toast Man!

    Incidentally, anyone seen pictures of the star tours third wave anywhere? That taunt of an R5-D4 figure is really starting to get to me. I want to know if it's the POTF one tarted up or a completely new one. I think they'd be mad to release one using the POTF sculpt but they have been doing a lot of recycling lately....

    But yes to the red battle droid. hope it gets around before christmas. I was going to say probably a November release and then realised that it's november tomorrow man this year has flown by!

    When are you guys expecting the last of the 2002 stuff to be released? And does the 2003 stuff start in January or December?

    All the pre-orders are starting january. TPU just reported that Diamond say comic stores should be taking pre-orders for the first waves of 2003 basic figures shipping in January. From all i've read recently there are two waves of basic, one for january and one for february. Roughly six figures in each wave.

    Availible to preorder for JAN03 from ANY COMIC STORE !! just go grab a previews catalogue that was out today and look in the UK section.

    Saga Basic Action Figures RRP 5.99 each
    Anakin Skywalker (mechanical arm)
    Boba Fett classic (Quick Draw)
    R2-D2 (Flying)
    Lama-su and Clone Boy
    Twilek Jedi
    Bariss Offee

    Saga Deluxe Action Figures RRP 7.99each
    Obi-wan Kenobi Force Power
    Jango Fett Flying

    Also offered is the Interactive R2-D2 RRP 110 and it says is limited to just 500 in the UK
    So that's the first deluxe wave then also. No news on the dwarf spider droid though. maybe that'll be a february release?

    Would this year's schedule follow the POTJ deluxe's releases? If so, the spider droid and droid builder sets would come in a month. But I'd say second quarter 2003 is more likely, especially with all the deluxe rotting thus far.

    The Deluxe Speeders could make it for December, not sure though. Theres also the Arena which IIRC has been a found in some areas but not many.
    "Hokey packaging and ancient gimmicks are no match for good detail on your figure, kid."
    "I am a Klingot from Oklahoma in human boy form."
    "We came, we saw, we conquered... We, woke up!"

    LTBasker, the Speeder's are going to be boxed, from what I have read. Not in the Deluxe line, like the CloneTrooper w/ Speederbike. Likely so that they could charge a bit more for them. But it will also make them easier to find, since the Deluxe line is tough to find later waves in some areas.
